Add a petabyte constant

I'm hoping I'll need to use this one day on my own site :)

define( 'PB_IN_BYTES', 1024 * TB_IN_BYTES );

On a serious note, this may now (on soon) be needed by some of the largest websites.

It's used just once in core as far as I can tell, and that's in size_format().

As size_format() works with floats and strings we might as well add PB, EB, ZB, and YB too.

1YB is a trillion trillion bytes according to Wikipedia

Yikes :)

While we're on it, what about the base 2 / base 10 thing?

The current constants and size_format() function use base 2. What's the use case for base 10 versions? I think that can go into a separate ticket if there is a need.
